A photo from a newspaper clipping of my mother’s father, Felix Ference. We called him Pop.
Pop was a member of the Spartan Strength Club, a weightlifting club that formed in Wilmington, Delaware in 1936. Pop was the Delaware state heavyweight weightlifting champion for seven years. Amazing.
Pop was born in Wilmington in 1913. He died in 1991. This picture was probably taken in the late 1930’s.
